Book Review of Just Pretending by Leah and Kate Rooper


It's not easy being royal. Sixteen-year-old Evangeline wears her crown proudly, but between her duties and her overprotective big brother, the idea of romance is just a dream. But a chance encounter in Chicago changes all that…. 

Sure, seventeen-year-old Tyler Evans loves playing hockey, but he's more concerned about providing for his dad and little sister. Then he meets Eva--and falls head-over-heels in love—and he has two more problems. One, she's his best friend's little sister. Two, she wears a crown.

But then Eva accidentally mistakes Tyler for a visiting prince, and for the first time, Tyler doesn't feel like a nobody. He knows he has to tell her the truth…but not yet. 

His plan? To keep up the royal charade as long as it takes to convince Eva he’s the guy for her. Even if he’s lying to everyone…including himself.

Disclaimer: May cause disillusionment. Those girls looking to find their Prince Charming might consider scouting out hockey rinks.



*We were given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*

First off, I love the way this book was written. The story flows so easily and before you know it you're caught up in the drama, eagerly waiting, watching and hoping for Eva and Tyler to find love. 

I love how the book went back and forth between Eva and Tyler, showing the reader both of their worlds and how they perceived each other. I felt this added a great dynamic to the story. 

This book reads like a romantic comedy, with plenty of heartfelt moments. I did find myself sometimes annoyed with how down Tyler could be on himself but was easily able to look over this fact due to the drama that is created early in the story. 

If you like a fast romantic read, young adult, or any story with a queen/royalty in it, pick up Just Pretending now!
